The only people more excited than us about the 2010 VMA nominations were the nominees themselves (go figure!). No one was more stoked (and rightly so) than Lady Gaga, who garnered a record-breaking 13 nominations. Gaga tweeted, "13 VMA noms lilmonsters. Breakin records+breakin rüles. I love you, you Bad Kids are a part of me. PAWS UP! #VideoMonsterAwards." Justin Bieber, a fellow nominee, gave Gaga kudos for her accolades, as he posted, "thank you to @mtv im honored and congrats to all the nominees and to @ladygaga for her record breaking 13 noms. That's pretty pretty good."
Newcomer Ke$ha basked in the glory of three nominations, as she wrote from her page, "i dont even know what to say. im so grateful and thankful and stunned and excited." Meanwhile, returning nominee Katy Perry, was happy to be up for a Moon Man, but reminded followers she left with a whole different kind of parting gift last year, "Thanks @MTV for the noms, I've barely just started cranking em out! I luv the VMA's, u never know what u'll get from em! I got a hubby. LOL."
